(applause) how are you. >> i'm great. >> jon: governor's story, fight for jobs and america's economic future. yesterday we had on another midwestern governor faced with a lot of similar things that you faced in michigan on the republican side. how much do governors come together on policy? how much of it-- when you are a governor how much is ideaological, how much is pragmatic. >> a ton of it is prak matic but we do compete against one another, for jobs. we're always boasting oh, i got this job from, you know, illinois or indiana or texas, every governor is in the game of competing for jobs. and that's not a very good national strategy. >> jon: so you are not just competing globally. >> no. >> jon: you're actually competing with right-to-work states. >> well, and every governor has an interventionist economic development strategy, you know, rick perry who say
and it has started. jennifer granholm is a former governor of michigan, now an msnbc contributor, and the author of a brand-new book "a governor's story, a fight for jobs in america's future." and bob strum is an economic strategist. i want you to listen to this. clinton strategist mark penn who worked for the clintons said, "obama's new tone won't work." he writes in "the huffington post, "quote, barack obama is careening down the wrong path towards re-election. he should be claiming the vital center, not abandoning it. he should be holding down taxes rather than raising them. he should be bringing the country together rather than dividing it through class warfare. that's mark penn. he's critiquing the president's new move to divide the country between those who want fair taxes and those who are rich, who don't. your thoughts, bob shrum? >> well, you know, that's marcus saying this kind of stuff all the time. two reactions to it. first, it was a remarkably fact-free and numbers-free piece from a guy who's supposed to be a pollster. he says, for example, that gore lost -- i actua
will support this democratic president or will we see in places like michigan what we saw in the reagan days, blue collar reagan democrats helping the republicans? >> i think it's going to be different this time because of the attack on the -- on labor by the tea party. we had 100,000 people at a rally in madison, wisconsin. we had 50,000 people in ohio. we collected a million signatures in ohio. people realize what's going on, that they might have voted republican a small group of organized labor. but i think people are aware now that this group is coming after them. when they start talking about, you know, getting rid of social security, medicare, medicaid, rolling back collective bargaining in major states, i think this is -- this has been the wake-up call an maybe labor needs. and some of those people that voted republican are now going to say, what a mistake i made because i didn't know they were going to take my job away, i didn't know they were going to take clollective bargaining awa. you saw what they did and what they believe in. and you heard this debate in washington with regard
there. host: grand rapids, michigan. steve, good morning good morning. caller: good morning. i heard your earlier comment about comment about -- i heard your earlier comment about the budget being very small. host: that's what advocates say. in comparison, about $5 billion. it is smaller compared to government's overall budget, as well as corporations. caller: i think you are very naive in the fact that when we want the u.n. to vote our way, we literally drive all these other countries, -- we bribe all these other countries, and we spend millions more than that to get the boat to go our way. when we do get a vote in the u.n., the united states carries the major weight. we use all our supplies, all our troops. you are wrong with the money. host: where did you find this data? where did you find the stated that the u.n. uses money to bribe. the united states, excuse me. caller: there are so many backdoor deals. if you vote our way, we will build you this dam, or we will do this or that. that goes on all the time. host: where have you read that? caller: where have i read that? that's jus
-runner's status this weekend. mitt romney won michigan straw poll by a 3-1 margin over perry. now, romney's father served as michigan governor in the '60s making the son somewhat of a home state favorite. in florida, herman cain took top billing. he drew twice as many votes as perry, with romney in third place. cain says he won because voters are beginning to notice his 999 tax plan. here's how he explains it. >> my plan is bold because it throws out the tax code and imposes a business flat tax of 9%, personal flat tax of 9%, national sales tax of 9%. it replaces all of the taxes that people are now having to grapple with and it provides search engine to the business community which is what they're looking for in order to grow this economy. >> governor perry jumped into the race for the gop nomination. that was just six weeks ago. instantly topped the polls but critics say that perry's debate performances have been kind of shaky, leaning to some doubts. >>> well, in 3 1/2 hours we're going to get new details on the washington monument and perhaps when it's going to reopen to tourists. it's been cl

live in the upper peninsula of michigan. >> i'm sorry to interrupt you. i don't think we should be receiving testimony from family members. >> i've read this letter. it is a letter in the packet. i believe that letter is in the packet. it is also not necessary. if it is in the packet and i have read it. i suspect the commissioners have read it. if you would like toest isify as yourself. -- to testify as yourself, that is of course an option. >> well, i would. i would like to say that i really hope that this can -- that their project can go through as planned. we have a very close neighborhood. we -- its -- i think that the plans look like they would fit right in with what has been done. we did this in our -- at our house several years ago and it is a great way to keep families together and i hope that it can go through. thank you. >> i have a question. where is your house? >> we're 400 day street on the corner. >> and you added a floor? >> yes. >> and did you a setback? >> it really -- the -- the footprint of the house didn't really change any. >> when you added the top floor. >
into the conversation, i want to show a little moment here. governor romney and his wife were at an event in michigan. i'm going to call this no disrespect to anybody intended. i'm sure some will be taken, al gore like. >> you want a better kiss than that? >> no, no, no. >> we're not going to do an al gore moment. >> we bring that out not just because it's cute video, kevin, you saw the horse race numbers that perry, romney -- if you break it down there's a gender gap in the republican field. among men, 35% of republican men say perry. 18% say romney. among women, 26% say romney and 22% say perry. why do we have a gender gap? >> well, i think one of the -- erick made this point earlier, as people start to learn more about governor perry, some of the issues that are not very helpful to him with women voters have come to the forefront. namely, the hpv vaccine. for mothers out there with daughters that were forced to have an inoculation, they may see that as something they don't agree with, and something they reject. i also think there's a point where governor romney, many voters have started to gravitate

alters tone and tactics." here is one twitter message -- host: doreen, clinton township, michigan. caller: first off, i will vote for president obama. i think he is the most connected president we have ever had. second of all, i am sick and tired of people blaming him for this mess. he did not create this mess, congress created this mess. those people, spending our money, which they should not have been, i think that he needs to get tougher. mr. boehner is nothing but a pompous idiot. he did nothing to help our president. i am sick and tired of what is happening in congress. host: we are running out of time. i will jump in ike -- i will jump in here so that we can get more viewpoints in. you can leave a comment on our c-span page on facebook. here is one -- host: pat, for the duck, california. caller: i believe that he is trying to do everything that he can for the country. mitch mcconnell and all of the rest of the republicans, they need to sit down and try to work together. which president obama has tried to do for some time. it is to the point now where he is a little frustrated. peopl
out and vote. thank you. >> danny from texas. host: david on the republican line from michigan. go ahead. caller: good morning. my first reaction is that obama needs to step down as president because he's failed so miserably and taking the nation into such a wrong direction. he often asks arab leaders that have done the same thing to step down. we should just appoint one of these republicans or tea party people like michelle bachmann or mitt romney or rick perry. to the other callers on the ponzi scheme and social security. i looked up ponzi scheme on wiki and it defines a ponzi scheme as a program like social security. it's part of the modern definition. everybody in the republican party and tea party they have a pretty well unified front talking about cutting taxes and getting rid of obama care which will save our medical across the united states and up lift our nation. the cutting of taxes, here's what happened to me. i was working as an engineer for a major corporation in the united states. the company had to pay so much taxes out that they just folded up and laid off 50,000 p

, educated at the university of michigan. has written several books, a long list of books. .uest: keeps me busy host: democrat, good morning. caller: i have one question that i keep hearing over and over again from republicans, the tax as corporations pay, if we could just get it down. i would like to know from the man from heritage, the name of a company, just one, that actually pays 35% in taxes after deductions in loop holes. i want an aim of one company. if you cannot give me the name of one company, everything you say is disingenuous. host: put you on the spot here. guest: i think she actually has a good point. if you are -- there are different carve-outs and deductions that get stuck in it the tax code. the actual effective rate is closer to 18%. you are paying the full rate, more or less. it acts as a disincentive to job growth. speaker boehner and president obama said that one of the things they would like to do is motivate the tax rate, the highest in the industrialized world, but eliminate these deductions and credits so that there are fewer barriers for companies. host: we will

there are all these strings attached. host: michigan. joel is an educator. what kind are you? caller: school board member . kudos to the gentleman before who talked about how our students learn. i would like the administration to take a look at the expert on education and what it takes to educate our students. second of all, we keep looking at federal money in this new proposal to help fund schools. the problem with federal money is, for example, title 1, the food and nutrition bill had never been fully funded. school districts subsidize to make up for the money the federal government is not sending to the school districts. if the federal government met their obligation and fully funded programs, the districts would have plenty of money left over to hire and keep teachers on instead of every year taking money out of our budget to subsidize the subsidies that the federal government isn't sending us. it is time to fully fund these programs, ida, title 1, food and nutrition, etc. 3, it is time for the administration and congress to meet with school board members. every year we go to washington,

screen. >> this one from new era michigan on our republicans line. caller: basically the reason we have the tax system we have today is because of the supreme court has never accepted a nonburdensome tax. i was hoping to install a seven-year tax strike so one year everybody would not have to pay federal tax one year. that means everyone that works will get one-seventh of what they paid in fica, then the system could raise the tax as high as they want or low as they can by the politician people's vote. they would be able to afford something, and the people would be able to get a rebait from whatever they think they can expense. and hopefully for a gold standard for the united states, hopefully get it down to 99 cents a gallon again. and we can have gas wars again. host: here's a little more from speaker boehner's speech yesterday. caller: tax increases i think are off the table. i don't think they are viable. it is a simple eindication. tax increases destroy jobs. the mission is it to reduce the deficit, threatening jobs creation in our country. we should not make this task harder by ask
, michigan. good morning to you. this is a special edition of "new york post." go-ahead. you are on the air. caller: this is brian, calling about the 9/11 incident. i still believe it was an inside job. i have been studying every piece of footage i could get my hands on for the last 10 years. my conclusion out of my research is that it was a distraction. the buildings coming down, the two tower is coming down was a distraction. host: what happened to the people on board those flights? caller: there is true that they were let off somewhere else. host: caller, i'm one to stop you there. we're not going to spend the morning dealing with things that are completely fiction. we will deal with the facts and get your comments and reflections. caller: good morning. it is nice to speak with you today. can you hear me? hello? good morning? host: go ahead. caller: my memory is of september 9, 2001, c-span. i called during the 7:00 hour. you had a speaker who was advocating for the closure of overseas bases. i called in to voice my opinion that those overseas bases should not be called -- closed, that o
of the country for me. i actually can recall the big four carriers on lake michigan. nice to see them from time to time. they pulled iron from the north throughout the entire region. one that manufactured oils such as building cars, tractors, trucks and machinery, so did the ship errs, miners and support industries. as a result of the great lakes area, it it flourishes really was a good lesson in how we've come to learn to need each other. that is industry from the states and throughout interdependent. clearly, job retention and job creation are foremost in everyone's minds today. of our president, to the state capital, jobs are the most pressing need. i give you my view on this issue, speaking as the ceo for the company and i do serve on a number of our corporate boards. one of the ways we enhance the value of said 10 to our shareholders is too careful allocation of capital. so we must provide capital businesses that can escrow. the growth is either limited or declining. we have to make discipline investments. and generally, only the very best projects go forward. they're also investor return
she won't. nevada has the highest unemployment rate. there you go. california. michigan. south carolina. and the district of columbia. not a state obviously. these states many of them key presidential battlegrounds. another thing to watch, this one soon will come to a presidential debate near you. texas. the governor of texas is a candidate for president. his unemployment rate went up last month as well as he travels the country saying he is the best candidate to create jobs. but nationally is the big question. what can be done here in washington? is there anything the president has proposed that can help or are the answers maybe not in washington but out there in corporate america? let's get some perspective now from a man who has spent a lot of hours of late exploring the jobs question. his special, "restoring the american dream: getting back to work" airs sunday night at 8:00 here on cnn. i'm glad our colleague fareed zakaria can share some insights with us. first i want to break it in two parts, the debate in washington and the debate out there in what i'll call the real wo
is not a be-- >> if you can't win in the heart of new york city, how are you going to win in michigan and colorado -- >> if you look at the record the last couple years democrats won the majority of the special elections. it didn't mean nothing to us in 2010. i think we put too much weight on that one district. and in the end the president, look -- this is where james is right. the president and the white house, they're going to have to do a better job of communicating. clearly republicans have been winning the communication battle. i don't think there's a democrat in town who argue that they haven't been. >> quinnipiac poll out today, virginia one of the states the president won. everyone said, wow, the democrats won virginia. disapproval now, 54%. 40%. even california, look, the president is going to carry california unless everything goes south in november 2012. for the first time his approval rating in california is under 50%. 46%. so james, i think you're saying look at these numbers and mr. president even if you think you're right on the policy, you have to do something? >> well
. >> this is where a strong party chairman comes in and is tough on this. you'll remember back when michigan and florida tried to jump ahead in our primary season and according to the rules, everyone voted on in the democratic party voted on, that they would lose their delegates. now, someone has got to -- for this not to be a train wreck, a strong party chairman has to say if you move, there will be punishment for it. this is chaos on their side. believe me, i always root for chaos on their side. but this is chaos on their side. to one other point about what eric said. i. is an important state. it is an important state for organizing and getting in. if barack obama had not done well in iowa, he may not very well be president right now. it catapulted him. >> another reason to discount the iowa caucus. the republican convention is in florida. so they're going to have a hard time disqualifying florida delegates to the convention held in florida if they want to show up and not have the doors barred at the convention center. >> you never know. they might close the bars early and we couldn't have
